moving/copying sandbox directories -- does svn notice??

Hello, I am wondering what is the effect of moving or copying a
directory in a svn sandbox. Let's say I've executed svn co and
now I have a complete directory tree. If I move or copy one of
the directories in this tree, does svn notice that?
I tried just that to see what happens, and it appears that svn
does not notice -- svn log, svn diff, svn revert all worked just
the same as they would on the original directory. That's
encouraging, but I would just like to know if moving/copying
sandbox directories is expected to have no ill effect in general.

Let me clarify that I am not trying to change the structure of
the svn repository. For that, I know, there is svn mv/rm/copy.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this question.
